President Trump made a most distasteful and disingenuous appeal for the voters of Alabama to cast their ballots in favor of one of the very swamp creatures he promised to get rid of, their fill-in Senator for the vacated seat of Jeff Sessions.
After urging support for McConnell’s male prostitute Luther Strange, President Trump attempted to soothe the collective gag reflex among Alabama conservatives by reaffirming his belief in traditional American values.
Whatever President Trump’s reason for being in league with the poster child of Republican establishment corruption, Mitch McConnell, supporting his efforts to defeat Judge Roy Moore in favor of a swamp rat, he’s telling us it’s not because he abandoned his base.
He’s getting something in return, we must assume, something that he can’t discuss. He tells us that by going off on a tangent about a common enemy, the anti-American NFL and their plummeting support among the American people.
As one who used to waste all day Sunday and now seldom sees an NFL broadcast, I can affirm that once it’s gone it isn’t missed and they won’t get their hooks into me again. But for those who still like their NFL, Trump used the disgusting behavior of their spoiled brat players to illustrate that he’s still a conservative despite his endorsement of our enemy, Luther Strange.
Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field, right now; out, he’s fired.” The patriotic Alabama crowd supports their President and their country, they just don’t happen to agree with his choice in Senator. Chants of “USA” followed the comments.
He continues, “You know, some owner’s gonna do that. He’s going to say ‘that guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired. And that owner, they don’t know it, they don’t know it, they’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it – they’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country because that’s a total disrespect of our heritage. That’s a total disrespect of everything that we stand for.”
“And I know,” says Trump, “We have freedoms and we have freedom of choice and many, many different freedoms, but you know what? It’s still totally disrespectful. He notes that ratings are down because of officiating getting in the way, but the political garbage is hurting much more.
He mimics the motion of turning off the television in response to players taking a knee during the national anthem. President Trump also encouraged folks to walk out of the stadium when it happens. The problem with that approach is the league still has their money for salaries for the anti-American thugs. Better not to go, President Trump. We can spend our money on our own families rather than donate it to the enemy. Maybe take in a baseball game. They’re still civilized and respectful in MLB, for now.
